Goods Wagons

60841 is a 60ft Bogie Bolster / rail wagon, telegraph code 'GANE A'. It was built at Swindon in 1935, and purchased from there by SVR(H) in July 1975.[1]

In 1985, 60841 appeared on the main line when it was used in the GW 150 demonstration freight train which ran to Newport behind GWR freight loco 2857.[2]

The wagon was re-decked by the Wagon Department in November 1988.[3] As of 2018 it is stored out of use awaiting overhaul.
